No legal aid for Wilders' "fewer Moroccans" chant complainants
Aggrieved complainants in the "fewer Moroccans" case against Geert Wilders will not be able to count on legal aid. The Legal Aid Council recently rejected the requests submitted by the lawyers acting on behalf of dozens of Moroccan complainants. The Council decided that the case was not complex enough and the complainants would have no direct interest, which is a requirement for a so-called addition, the Telegraaf reports. Lawyers Yehudi Moszkowicz and Goran Sluiter, who act on behalf of some of the complainants, are completely baffled by the Council's decision. Moszkowicz called the fact that the Council can't see the importance of the case incomprehensible. "There are six thousand and fifteen reports against Wilders' statements. How can you ignore that?" he said to the newspaper. Sluiter called the decision "completely unacceptable. The lawyers will appeal against the decision.
